GEOMETRY: Chapter 10 10.1: Tangents to Circles

2
**A chord is a segment whose endpoints are on a circle. **

A circle is the set of all points in a plane that are equidistant from a given point called the center of the circle. A circle with center P can be written P. A segment whose endpoints are the center of any point on the circle is a radius. A chord is a segment whose endpoints are on a circle. A diameter is a chord that contains the center of a circle.

**A secant is a line that intersects a circle in two points**

A secant is a line that intersects a circle in two points. A tangent is a line in the plane of a circle that intersects the circle in exactly one point, the point of tangency. The tangent ray and the tangent segment are also called tangents. Image taken from:

Ex.1: Tell whether the line or segment is best described as a radius, chord, diameter, secant, or tangent of circle C. Image taken from: Geometry. McDougal Littell: Boston, P. 652.

COPLANAR CIRCLES—Two circles can intersect in two points, one point, or two points. Coplanar circles that intersect in one point are called tangent circles. Coplanar circles that have a common center are called concentric. Image taken from: Geometry. McDougal Littell: Boston, P. 652.

Common Tangents—A line, ray, or segment that is tangent to two coplanar circles is called a common tangent. Image taken from:

**Ex.3: Tell how many common tangents the circles have and draw them.**

Answer: a. 2 common tangents; b. 4 common; c. 3 common tangents Image taken from: Geometry. McDougal Littell: Boston, P. 653.

Theorem 10.1and 10.2: In a plane, a line is tangent to a circle if and only if the line is perpendicular to a radius of the circle at its endpoint on the circle. Image taken from: Geometry. McDougal Littell: Boston, P. 653.
